So while Jerry has been managing his health, mine is being funky.

I have been puffy.

Usually it goes away over night but for the past…oh..month-ish it has been sticking around.  I don’t know if it’s the hot weather, my hashimoto’s kicking up or something new.

Because I am nagging Jerry about his health, I decided that I need to practice what I preach.  So off to the doctor and I went and he immediately put me on Furosemide (Lasix) to draw the water off.

…like I have that many hours in a day to spend in the bathroom. (Sorry for the TMI)

Three days later, I’m still puffy, not as bad but I’d like my feet not to look like they have little pillows on the top.  Another call the doctor and I’m he doubled my RX by adding Metolazone (another water pill).  I’m truly hoping that I’m not up and down, back and forth, to the restroom tomorrow at work but I’m thinking that’s my reality….

I head back to the doctor in a few weeks to make sure that all my levels are okay.  I have a gut feeling that this is related to my Hashimoto’s…ugh…stupid thyroid…
